This instructable will show you how to make a crocheted flower pendant with a battery-powered LED center. It is a simple, quick project; the only skills it requires are basic crocheting and sewing. 

A few yards of yarn
1 x 5mm diffused LED
Small piece of material that doesn't fray (I used scrap leather)
3 x metal head pins or a small length of wire
6" length of conductive thread
chain with clasp
3v button cell battery
regular thread
feathers or other embellishments (optional)

hot glue gun 
needle-nose pliers
small crochet hook (I used size E)

Step 1: Crocheting the Flower

For my flower, I used a simple pattern and a size E hook. This can be varied to modify the finished piece.

Flower Pattern:

Ch 6, sl st into 1st ch to form a ring.

Round 1: Ch 1, work 15 sc into ring, sl st in 1st sc.

Round 2: *Ch 3, work dc2tog over next 2 stitches, ch 3, sl st in next sc*, rep from * to * for a total of 5 times, placing last sl st in sl st from previous round.

Fasten off.

Very cute!
